According to the New York Times, Rudy Giuliani clarified his statements about the Moscow tower project, saying his comments were "hypotehtical" and not "based on conversations" he had with President Donald Trump.

Giuliani went a step further with the New York Times, where he quoted Trump saying the Trump Tower Moscow discussions were "going on from the day I announced to the day I won".

Trump has denied the BuzzFeed article's claim and Giuliani backed him: "I can tell you his counsel to Michael Cohen throughout that entire period was: "Tell the truth". Giuliani has contradicted himself a couple of times when discussing Trump's plans for a Moscow real estate deal in the past, and the Washington Post's Aaron Blake addresses some of those contradictions in a January 22 op-ed.

"The best he could do is, 'We talked about it, I knew he was running with it, I honestly didn't pay much attention to it, '" Giuliani said, characterizing Trump's memory.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is using flawed arguments to defend the president, because a quid-pro-quo arrangement with Russian Federation could be characterized as a bribe if it took place after Trump took office, former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah argued Monday.

Mr. Giuliani declined to tell CNN what the president's legal team told Mr. Mueller's team. "Make it happen", the sources said Trump told Cohen", BuzzFeed News reported.

An investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Moscow and Trump's campaign has loomed large over the Trump presidency amid media reports of his team's connections with Russian Federation. I don't think, as a lawyer, I ever said anything that's untruthful. Giuliani had then indicated in an interview with ABC News last month that the talks had lasted possibly until Election Day, although he was less specific than he was Sunday. The whole thing is problematic for them, though, and maybe Giuliani doesn't understand this, that it's all one big conspiracy....

Giuliani's timeline extends beyond what Cohen acknowledged in pleading guilty to lying to Congress about the deal: In that timeline, discussions about the tower continued through June 2016. "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal". "I am telling you that their investigation is so ridiculous that, even if he did do it, it wouldn't be a crime", he added. Giuliani said he knew the story was false because "I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the emails, and I knew none existed".
